Where to buy a bed for my dog?

Greetings everyone.

I am here to ask what mattress and bed are you guys use for your pets.
now I am thinking to buy a small mattress for my dogs, I saw some small size on nest bedding coupon because its user's reviews are too good.
but before that, I thought it's better to ask you guys if anyone has experienced with their mattress?

The Nest Bedding beds look very good but I have not tried them. I got my dog beds from Savvy Rest. I have had them for several years and the dogs appear to love them.

I didnít plan it this way but I bought a variety of inexpensive beds from places like Home Goods and Target. It turns out, I really like having little beds for him throughout the house since he tends to follow me if Iím working upstairs or downstairs or wherever. I also figured out he likes beds with 3 sides, not all the way around. He likes to be snuggled up but he wants to be able to see out one side without propping up his chin. So he definitely has preferences and some beds he doesnít really use, and Iím glad those were inexpensive. I did plan on buying a nice bed eventually, but the beds Iíve ended up with are pretty cute, decent quality and can go in the wash, so I donít see the need at this point unless I come across something that I really love from a decor perspective.

Willow has 8 beds! Plus there is also some people furniture that she'll use and my poofy goose down laprobe. I'm not counting those. She uses them all too. I've purchased beds from Chewy, Amazon and from one of the local pet stores such as Petco. I know she likes her little bed that just fits her where she can kind of curl up in. It has sides she can lean against. She likes her cot with a type of sheepskin removable cover and bolster. She has one small one for camping and one that's a little bigger for the house. I've been thinking of getting her one of those round, puff ball doughnut beds. They look like something Willow would like. Maybe I'll get one for a Christmas present.

We have several expensive, hand made “donut beds” that I’ve picked up at dog shows, and they like these, but it’s hit or miss finding them. I haven’t found a good commercial substitute. However, I also wanted something larger and flat that Kodi can stretch out on, now that he’s getting older. I got this memory foam one from Bark Box. It comes in several sizes. I chose this one because it exactly filled the space between the loveseat and the wall in my office: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It wasn’t terribly expensive for its size and you can zip off and wash the cover. The minute I set it out, he got on it and lay down, so I think he likes it!

Shama also has many beds throughout the house. We got most of them at T.J. Maxx.

We have lots of beds too. I won one in a raffle, bought a donut bed at home goods, a flat one like Karen from Amazon, and I got one of those fluffy poof beds for the puppy's ex pen. He seems to like it a lot. He sinks down into it or gets under it. Loki likes different beds at different times. He likes the flat bed to stretch out, the donut bed to chew on things or hide treasures, etc. Of course, the hard wood floor is the favorite if he's hot. Even with all those beds, his favorite places are on my lap or the back of the sofa by my head!

He doesn't use any of them enough to buy expensive beds.

Typically, the havanese like a bolster or headrest for their heads.
I got Henry's at LLBean. It was a therapeutic mattress.

My goal for a dog bed was that it be as toxic free as possible. Since dogs spend lots of time in their beds I felt this was very important. This is why I chose an organic dog bed from Savvy Rest. I know that it is free of chemicals and made of natural fibers. Mattresses for both humans and dogs are often loaded with chemicals and flame retardants. Here is what Karen Becker has to say about this, although I am not necessarily recommending the bed Mercola sells.

Having multiple beds also makes natural flea prevention more difficult so I try to minimize the number of beds they have. Every place my dogs lay is vacuumed and or washed twice a week during flea season. More beds means a lot more work!
